Coastal Now – Boeing Military to Civilian Success Program

November 8, 2019


Free training is available for
individuals with a connection to the military. That program can take you
wherever you want to go with it. The Boeing Military to Civilian Success
program is open to veterans, active military members and spouses in South
Carolina. It’s offered exclusively at Coastal Carolina University. We have not
found another university that offers this particular type of program. Boeing
donated $80,000 to start the program. We’re excited to partner with them.
Estimates place a value on the training at $2000. For us to be
able to walk in there and take that for free, I feel like Boeing covering that
for us is really a good step. The idea is to convert skills gained in the military
to something that is useful in the corporate world. I think it has the
potential to dramatically influence a person’s level of success. Already, those
who served in the military bring a lot to the workplace. You’ll find an employee
that shows up to work, you’ll find an employee that does their job and usually
you’ll find an employee that takes it very seriously. The program consists of
two days in the classroom, plus two one-on-one counseling sessions. It is a
remarkable program, a lot of invaluable information.
Coastal has made a statement by developing this program. We really set
the benchmark for how we treat our veterans, how we want our veterans to
succeed.
